Maybe with 7-Zip?
And that helps with "change language, extract files and create own firmware" ?
This does not work x(
Archive cannot be opened.
Latest beta version of 7-zip does it. Then open the resulting file with explore2fs tool on windows.
are you able to explain what you did to create this firmware file?
anyone know if this will work on the 2332?
It's all here in the posts, but playing with the files and applying different hacks to the files before using the hiktools create command. The only reason to do this is so we can all learn and not profit from it, so some smart arse on the forum gets less from everyone for his greed lol.
Just give it a try, I have used it on 6 different camera's all were 1/2015 all are now Full English.
You will not brick if it doesn't work for you, you will just be Chinese, So if you are just chinese at the moment nothing lost is there!
I just tried it on a 2532 cam that left the factory with 5.2.8 and arrived with 5.2.3 in full English, including the day of the week. The firmware changed the IPC to 5.2.5 but in full Chinese, no English anywhere. I wonder why it worked for your IPCs but not mine? I wonder if there is anything I can do to fix this? I'm pretty sure that my NVR will complain of "language mismatch" when I try it out later tonight.
not work with 2332-i with chinese 5.2.8 firmware, is need any special hacks before create the new dav file?
Does anyone know how to calculate a new checksum if I've modified something?
HIKVISION 5.16 Full English including days of the weeks.
works with all 2cd2xxx models. Just flash with
will work with some 5.2.8 models, if your 5.2.8 camera bricks just reflash back to 5.2.5 (this is not the firmware it's your Camera)

Is it possible to do the mtd hack after this without bricking (on an original 5.2.5 or 5.2.8), and then upgrade back to 5.2.5?
If you can download grade to this 5.16 and your camera boots all ok. then yes you can do the hack.
I tried your 5.1.6 firmware for downgrading my 5.2.0 cameras and it works perfectly.
Now the version is: "V5.1.6 build 140412" so it seems to be April 2014 build.
I read: "Also, make sure you use the June 2014 build of 5.1.6 not the April 2014 5.1.6"
Do you know if there is a big improvement in June 2014 build?
And in that case, would it be possibile to patch that version and distribute it?
Or I could do it myself, if I understand well, with Hiktools, but I'm not so confident, so I need a few directions on how to proceed, then I'll be glad to post 5.1.6 June 2014 here if I manage to do it.
Thank you in advance
Okay. yes I will do the June Version and post. Can't seem to find the June Build of 5.16 does anyone have a copy?
can anyone help please
I have just purchased DS-7616N-E2/8P
how do I change language to English?
Hi just use this firmware, and you will have Multilingual support. It's version 3.10 if you are on 3.2.1 you will have to
TFTP it on, if you are on 3.08 or 3.10 you can load it via the web inteface or a usb stick.
thanks I have done it but now how do I upload it, its in Chinese no idea where to go and update
